Included in the resource is a step-by-step practitioner resource, providing a robust evidence base with guidance and tips to maximise impact. It also includes sample resource cards, review templates, planning documents, certificates and a variety of free downloadable resources to support the delivery of daily physical activity within school.

POWER Programme Enhanced

Given that physical inactivity is the fourth leading risk factor for premature death, it is vital that young people develop positive health behaviours as early as possible. The LSSP POWER programme will support the development of positive health behaviours in a fun and engaging way so that learning becomes embedded.

The POWER programme will target and engage with 45 of your most inactive KS2 pupils and is delivered over 6 weeks between 9am-12pm (50 mins x 15 children)

“The games we have learnt are fun and easy to play, if we have fun leading the games the children on the playground will have fun playing them.”
